Here in the UK, it pays to make the most of any glorious sunshiney weeks that we get – they are few and far between 🙂
So last week, we made the most of the lovely weather and had plenty of fresh air and exercise outdoors. And what better way to refresh yourself afterwards than with a homemade smoothie? The boys experimented with various combinations of coconut milk, yogurt, coconut cream, frozen bananas & blackberries, fresh pineapple, fresh blueberries…but eventually settled on their favourite combo which was coconut milk mixed with frozen bananas and fresh blueberries. Here’s a pic Gman took of said combo:

This week’s weather forecast: heavy rain, cold, cloudy. Back to normal then!
